You may want to give MalwareBytes a try.

Phosphorous, thanks

After doing a little searching , I found out that this program installs itself into my computer without notifying me and that it comes with a trojan horse. I read this from here http://www.americanpendulum.com/2013/03 ... d-removal/ and my question is, now that I did a full scan with Malwarebytes and removed PC Fix Speed, does that mean there is still a trojan horse in my PC, because the antivirus program did not detect any?
I also searched in this thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ ... optimizer/ , but they did not mention it at all?
Thanks :)

It may very well have been taken care of by MalWareBytes. But there are other programs that can be run to take a look see. Some work well with some versions of Windows and won't work at all with others.
So the first thing we need is which version of Windows are you running? I assume that you are running some sort of Windows. If not, what are you using?

To quote Nasty:
When I have problems like this I run three apps:

Smitfraudfix, Combofix and Malwarebytes. Be sure you run them in that order in safe mode with networking and I think it will flush your system of wee beasties.

http://shop.malwarebytes.org/lpa/342/3/ ... 4AodqiWoAw

Be sure to download them in safe mode. The only one that installs is Malwarebytes....install it, update it and run it, get the free version of Malwarebytes....it works just fine. The rest are free, if you feel like donating to help the first two, please do. All these apps take time to run, be patient and let them do their magic.

Be sure to read the disclaimer concerning ComboFix before doing anything with it. It can cause you more problems than what you already have (or had) if used without the aid of a trained helper. We actually have someone on the forums here that is an expert in the use of this program and you should consult him (hackman2007) first. Just FYI.
